Plenty to Love about the Connolly’s RED MILLS Race Day

February 5, 2015

Race goers at this year’s RED MILLS Day at Gowran Park could win more than a flutter at the horses with the announcement of a major holiday prizes for one lucky couple at the popular race day, which falls on 14 February – St. Valentine’s Day.

Gowran Park and Connolly’s RED MILLS have announced details of this year’s RED MILLS Day, which includes a Love Racing? Love A Holiday? competition. Open to all couples who register on the day, the lucky winners will walk away a weekend break to a European city, with BMW transfers by Morrison BMW & MINI from their home to the airport and back, plus €500 spending money.

“As RED MILLS Day falls on the most romantic day of the year, we have decided to make the day all about couples. All couples who register on the day will receive a complimentary glass of bubbly and enter our draw for the top prize. Lots will be drawn for both the RED MILLS Chase and Hurdle whereby each couple will be given the name of a horse and the first two horses home in each race will qualify the lucky couples to a shot for the overall prize”, commented Laura McDonald, Marketing Executive for Connolly’s RED MILLS.

Eddie Scally, General Manager, Gowran Park racecourse said “Love Racing? Love A Holiday? is a great idea and a cracking prize. RED MILLS Day is always a bumper day for Gowran Park and we expect 2015 to be no different. In 2015 our tagline is ‘Get your Heart Racing’ – perhaps ‘Get Your Love Heart Racing for RED MILLS’ is more appropriate for this competition”
